“AMP It Up” Challenge Engages Students in Advanced Manufacturing

The AMP it up! Challenge invites students to research an advanced manufacturing innovation in Massachusetts and then present it in a 3-minute video to explain how it’s made, why it matters, and what it means to the student.  One middle school, one high school, and one community college in the state will each win $5,000 in unrestricted grant funding.  Manufacturers are encouraged to sign up now to support the challenge by talking with students and offering factory tours.  Schools should sign up to participate and may be represented by individual students, classes, groups, or clubs.  Students must submit their videos by February 28.  For more information, email Larissa Matzek at lmatzek@massdevelopment.com. Here are the winning videos from the 2016 and 2017 contests.
